This compilation of extracts from the much-loved BBC Radio 4 programme Woman's Hour looks at the changing role of mothers over the last fifty years; the relationships that they have enjoyed with their children, how they have juggled the work/life balance and how they have challenged stereotypes and tested the boundaries of what being a mother means.

All aspects of motherhood are here - single mothers, campaigning mothers, working mothers, Jewish mothers, mothers in law and even godmothers. Amongst the contributors are Margaret Thatcher, talking about women in government and her thoughts on childcare, and Dame Shirley Williams, who discusses her famous mother Vera Brittain.

Also included are Sonia Keppel reminiscing about her mother Alice, mistress of Edward VII and great-grandmother to Camilla Parker Bowles; Laurie Lee reading from his famous memoir Cider with Rosie and poetry from Liz Lochhead and Fleur Adcock. From serious issues like women's involvement in the Northern Ireland peace process to lighter themes such as how to dress well, this release reveals the pivotal role played by mothers in an ever-changing world.

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Thereís nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us canít do that as much as weíd like. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. Itís a common problem and itís the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
